Life can be unpredictable and overwhelming, and we may have to deal with it alone. At Amplexum Counselling, we believe that many of us are traumatised not by being hurt but by being alone during times of hurt. So often, we say to ourselves, “if only I had someone to talk to”. Perhaps that desire is one of the reasons you came here.
Through counselling, we provide a safe space to explore, express and navigate your thoughts and emotions. We empower you to find the strength to flourish and develop self-compassion. Then, after counselling, you can wholeheartedly embrace your life, becoming the person you want to be.
My name is Raj Kalirai and I am one of the founders of Amplexum Counselling. I am a Qualified Integrative Counsellor with CBT training and a range of experience in wellbeing. I am a member of the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapists (BACP) and a member of the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP).
I am committed to helping individuals who have experienced various difficulties such as anxiety, depression, trauma, domestic abuse, social phobias, PTSD and sexual abuse to name a few. I am dedicated to helping you heal from the trauma of your life’s events and support you in having a positive mental and emotional wellbeing.
My working experience and training has equipped me with the skills to work closely with people of all ages from different backgrounds and cultures, in order to support you on your journey of clarity and understanding of your life and emotions.
I use proven achievable techniques and interventions to provide a platform for my clients to talk openly and effect positive change in their lives. I pride myself on my professionalism always remaining non-judgemental and congruent.
In my practice, I embody the core values of empathy, trust and confidentiality. I strongly believe it is this trusting relationship which is the solid foundation through which many doors can open allowing for change to take place. This is where it starts, so do not be afraid to start this journey, as you are not alone!
